Vashta family root history is exactly not known .We think Vashta name derived from Vasistha because Gotra
is Vasishtha.As per Anand Vashta's family concept Vashta people are pujaris of Banshankridevi temple near Vijapur. After drought
in 13th century they get migrated to southeren Maharashtra that is near by Sangli. But He is not sure whether this is true
My ( Shrirang Vashta ) ancestor were living in Khanderajuri near Malgoan in Miraj Taluka ,Sangli Dist . Same
time our family known as Kanderajurikar - Joshi .Later on they shifted to Mhaisal after few years my grandfater shifted to
Sangli . Detail family history is unknown.
We also found Vashta family kuldaiwat is Tulja Bhavani , Ambabai , Ekvira ( Kolhapur ) and Jotiba
We received letter from Shri Purushottam Gananan Vashta Age 70 Harli ,Gadhinglaj Dis.Kolhapur . In
his family tree up to eight generation names are recorded . He told that their surname is chaged before ealier 4 th
generation from Dixit to Vashta . Even today cousin brother side have Dixit surname . He have no idea how Dixit changed to
Vashta . In his family his one of the ancestor perfomed Somyag Yadnya . He have his ancestor's Sanad documents written in
Modi scipt .
Few years before Vashta families contrasted in Sangli District ( Sangli,Miraj,Mhaisal ) but now days
Vashta families spread over Maharashtra like Kolhapur ,Satara , Pune, Mumbai , Delhi and other places .Some families are in
other states ,Some young generation may be out of India.
Earlier Vashta family working field was limited but now days
many Vashta family members are working in banking ,finance construction, medical, electronics,software,telecommunication,I.T.
and other advance field and working on responsible positions.
